Bray outlines Taylor homecoming plans

Sat, Aug 11, 2012, 01:00

Thousands of people are expected to head for Bray on Monday to welcome home Olympic gold medallist Katie Taylor and teammate Adam Nolan.

Bray Town Council today announced plans for a ceremony and concert on the seafront, with events kicking off at 3pm.

The town has seen an influx of visitors in recent days, with about 6,000 people showing up for an open-air screening beside the bandstand on the seafront of Katie Taylor’s gold medal bout.

The crowd have also been behind garda Adam Nolan, who fought in the welterweight division. Nolan is from Enniscorthy, Co Wexford, but stationed in Bray.

Both fighters will be transported by open-top bus to the bandstand and presented to the waiting crowd at 5pm.

Live music and fireworks are planned for the evening’s entertainment.

Bray Town Council are advising anyone planning to attend to use public transport where possible, with local road closures in place and limited parking.
